Guitar Strings & Gauges

D'Addario strings

Guitar strings come in different sizes/gauges, usually starting from .009(light) to .013(heavy).

If you’re looking for a chunky, low end sound then always buy heavy string sets. It’s easier to produce the bass heavy sounds this way. Although, it can be really difficult to play solos on a .012 or .013 set.

If you are new to learning solos and want to focus on your lead playing, you should buy a light gauge set. This will make playing very easy and smooth, ideal for beginners.

For everyone else, .010 or .011 should be absolutely fine whether you want to play blues, rock, pop, etc.
